Unveiled to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Aston Martin’s most legendary high-performance road car, the DB4GT Zagato, the V12 Zagato was first shown to the public in 2011 at the Villa d’Este Concorso d’Eleganza, where it was heralded with the competition’s “Design Award for Concept Cars and Prototypes”, and would enter limited production in 2012. Like the previous collaborations between Zagato and Aston Martin, the V12 Zagato instantly became the most desirable car in the Aston Martin line-up at the time, replete with an intended racing series. However, fewer were built and sold than intended, possibly as a result of the car's rather optimistic price tag of £330,000, and in the end, only 61 found homes. 

Immediately recognisable as not only an Aston Martin but one with Zagato coachwork, the V12 Zagato is clothed in lightweight, hand-rolled aluminium and carbon-fibre body panels and over 2,000 hours of craftsmanship were expended in the construction of each. This represents the extreme application of Aston Martin’s know-how and the technologies, materials, and techniques that have been gained by creating the recent generation of Aston Martin cars, making the V12 Zagato a modern classic Aston Martin like no other.

The use of the finest materials has always distinguished Aston Martin from its rivals. Exquisitely shaped alloys and soft British hide leathers are joined by high-tech materials like carbon‑fibre composites and lightweight metal castings. A number of trademark Zagato design cues include a contemporary vestige of the famous Zagato double-bubble roof, with short front and rear overhangs and a wide mouth grille with a ‘Z’ motif. In terms of specification, the options were virtually limitless, through the manufacturer’s 'Q' Division and customers were able to choose from five exclusive colours, inspired by those available on the original DB4GT Zagato. Inside, the leather was hand-trimmed in a unique quilted Zagato motif, carrying through to the seats, door panels, and rear parcel shelf.

Underneath the gorgeous coachwork was Aston Martin’s highest-specification Vantage drivetrain to date with a 510bhp, 5,935cc DOHC V-12 engine, six-speed manual transaxle, front and rear independent suspension with double wishbones and coil springs, and four-wheel carbon-ceramic disc brakes with ABS.

This example is one of those 61 cars and is incredibly special as it has only covered a handful of delivery miles and is effectively brand new. It's left-hand drive, finished in Diavolo Red with Obsidian Black hide beautifully stitched in red and was delivered new to the UAE. A truly stunning Zagato and one for the collector.

Thundering performance in combination with understated refinement throughout, and with every nuance shaped to perfection, the Aston Martin V12 Zagato is a worthy tribute to the legendary DB4GT Zagato that inspired its creation.
